Built with Your Family in Mind
Working closely with clinicians and parents, Ochsner created a space that supports your child’s special needs and eases the challenges you face as a parent.

Boh Developmental Center - Child smells flower

Ochsner carefully considered environmental and sensory design elements such as light, acoustics, colors, ventilation, zoning, spatial configurations, textures and materials.

Features include:

  • Covered drop-off areas
  • Larger exam rooms and doorways
  • A sensory room
  • Therapeutic observation rooms
  • A spacious, light-filled onsite therapy gym featuring the latest rehabilitation technologies

Related pediatric subspecialty services are located on the second floor of the Boh Center, and a healing garden connects the pediatric primary care and Boh Center buildings. The healing garden incorporates different textures and surfaces such as stairs, curbs, gravel, grass and cobblestones, giving patients and therapists an opportunity to practice navigating real-world challenges in a safe environment. It is also a place for all visitors to the pediatric campus to rest and relax.

A Program for Children, Their Parents and the Community

When your child’s circumstances propel you into the unfamiliar world of sub-specialties, it can be a daunting duty. Nobody knows that better than Ann and Robert Boh, who are helping us build this center in memory of their son Michael who was challenged by cystic fibrosis, hearing loss, and mental health issues. According to the Boh’s, the decisions parents face can be life-changing ones, and the lack of prior experience can be overwhelming.

A Program for Children, Their Parents and the Community

At Ochsner, we take care of the whole family. Our team of dedicated professionals will help you navigate the resources available to your child and connect you with the care, support and guidance you need to move forward. What’s more, a parental advisory group and collaboration with community organizations and schools ensure that all resources are brought together in the service of your children.

Workshops

Ochsner offers group parent training sessions using RUBI series for children with autism. Morning and evening sessions are available.
